How tackling food intolerance means less time off work

Did you know that food intolerance's can reduce your productivity and energy levels in the workplace?

Common causes

Common causes of workplace absenteeism are fatigue, migraines, anxiety, depression, IBS symptoms and nausea. Two in five have taken time off or reduced their responsibilities due to these symptoms.

In many cases these symptoms are linked to food intolerance's, but sufferers may not be aware that it’s their diet that is to blame. The problem is that food intolerance is not something you are born with, it can develop at a later stage of your life. Also, the effects can last for days, which is why it’s difficult to pinpoint which food is the culprit – keeping a food diary can help but, but it can take a long time and a lot of patience to figure it out.

Repair work for better health

When you’ve had food intolerance's, you have to do some repair work after the offending foods have been banished from the diet to give the body a chance to reduce inflammation.  This is where naturopathy works well in getting these individuals back on track.

While the NHS does a great job, it doesn’t take a preventative approach to food intolerance. It focuses on alleviating the symptoms, not dealing with the root cause like naturopathy would.

The Naturopathic approach

The naturopathic approach involves testing to find out exactly what foods are bad for your health and eliminating them for three-six months. Then you take one at a time, testing it at least twice or three times on a day, then use a four-day rotation method. Sometimes digestive enzymes are given to remove the burden on the digestive system.

In the ten years that I have been practising, I have seen many people with an array of intolerance's and it’s a joy to see their faces, when they start feeling so much better.
